High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) uses ultrasound waves to create a wound at a dermal level without affecting the top few layers of skin. This advanced treatment works to lift, tighten and knock years off the complexion, without the need for invasive surgery.
How does HIFU work?
HIFU directly delivers heat energy to skin and subcutaneous tissue that can stimulate and renew the skin’s collagen, improving the texture and reducing sagging of the skin. HIFU penetrates at deeper depths and higher temperatures than Radio Frequency, treating beyond the dermis, where skin structure starts to weaken. It literally achieves the results of a facelift without any invasive surgery or injections with no downtime.
What are the benefits of HIFU?
- Tightening of the neck and jawline
- Improving the appearance of hooded eyelids and droopy eyes
- Contouring mid-face
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- Tissue lifting and tightening
- Improvement of the epidermis
- When can I expect to see results?
Some clients can see and feel the effect immediately after the procedure. For most clients, good results start to become obvious after two months as the body produces collagen and elastin. Tightening and lifting will continue, with results at a maximum after 6 months.
How long does the procedure take?
Full face will take about 45 minutes to an hour for the whole session.
Does HIFU hurt?
HIFU is a non-invasive procedure, no needles are used and there is no downtime.
You may feel a little pin prick sensation throughout the treatment as the heat passes through the hand piece. This sensation is actually the collagen fibres tightening.
